Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Thursday, 9/8/11
Student NOTES from Institute juniors, not 'official'
Opening: NFL season opens in Green Bay tonight
Seg#1: Why have media Liberals moderate Republican debates?
NBC carries Obama in Congress but they have NFL pregame shows on cable news. How can he do a speech on JOBS without doing a Job Summit? Bam, problem solved.
I know Brian Williams and off the air he is genuinely funny. There is something that happens when you go to work at NBC or MSnbc. My question to him, "Are you having trouble sleeping at night?" [Similar to his question to Perry on capital punishment.] NBC and Drive-by Media enabled Obama ruining USA.
One of my favorite moments was the audience reaction, applauding, and Rick Perry didn't back down: "You come to Texas and kill our children or a cop, and you will pay the ultimate penalty."
Then they brought out a Hispanic commentator to ask about the border.
I do not know why the Reagan Library people partnered with Liberals. msNBC was doing everything they could to protect Obama. They wanted nobody talking about Obama. ((Clip-Rush: Anything that distracts Republicans from their three points isn't going to save America.)) ((Montage: Where do the poor come in? Unemployment is better in half the states. Which of these candidates do you say is crazy? Do you struggle to sleep at night?)) Brian, do sleep after supporting Obama on the assault on the private sector.
I don't care what Chris Matthews says! They have descended into hate. You have networks behind [dismantling America]. Newt again criticized the moderators for getting candidates to fight, and moderators did everything they could to keep Obama out of range.
Maxine Waters demands Obama care as much for unemployed Black youth as he does care about Iowa voters, both are about three million.
>>> How will Obama know what to do, without Job Summit input?
Segment#2: Call it what you want, Rick Perry was right
The pregame show is at USA Network or the NFL network at 7:00pmET and the game kickoff is at 8:30pm. NBC will pick it up after Obama speaks.
Only 41% approve of Obama, down 25% from when he entered office. Gallup interviewed Hispanics and Blacks, all disapproving.
Rick Perry was obviously the target of moderators and some candidates. Why do we continue to subject ourselves to the enemy questioning our hopefuls? I understand taking 'hard questions'.
John Huntsman said an untruth that 98% of scientists agree on manmade Global Warming. Rick Perry should have said, "NO. There is no such statistic." Most of them did well: Mitt Romney did well, Bachmann did well.
Byron York has an article critical of Perry when he sticks to his guns on Social Security being a Ponzi scheme. It is actually worse than a Ponzi scheme.
>>> A Ponzi scheme is voluntary and Social Security is not.
Seg#3: Conservatism did well in the Debate last night
Snerdley says what he heard what Rick Perry said about Social Security, he must listen to this show. How many years have Americans heard that there is no money in Social Security? A lot!
Paul Ryan proposed fixing Social Security and told seniors nothing would change for them. He was targeted by both the Left, and the Right. Rick Perry was similarly targeted. They made sure to attack him on bogus minimum wage claims. We know Texas is getting 'killed' by illegal immigrants coming in. Problem for Perry is he spent a lot of years not opposing. He supported tuition for them.
Do not get sidetracked with the border. This, and other issues, should not detract from tossing Obama. Moderators tried to protect Obama. "Can you sleep at night?" And Perry hung in there on that and Social Security. Rick Perry is willing to tell the truth.
We know Democrats will try to take them out but when our side does the same, it causes me grave concern about the future of America. It too the taxes of 140 to pay one recipients when Social Security began, spreading it around.
It is a rotten investment plan of FDR was to see Democrat power stayed in. It is a Ponzi scheme, but if you don't like that term, it is still unsustainable. When anyone points this out, they are said to be 'toxic'. George W Bush tried and used the word 'privatized' and was demagogued.
Our country as we know it cannot survive four more years of Obamanomics.
Romney did pretty well, sticking to his healthcare work in MA. Anybody on that panel is better than Obama, and will have the support of everybody else after being nominated.
((Clip-Rush: We just have 14 months to stop the assault on the private sector. Anything that distracts for Obama's vulnerability (1) jobs (2) economy / debt and (3) Obamacare; [is bad and worse].))
>>> Debate last night showed Conservatism well, with a few exceptions.
Segment#4: America is at a tipping point
Romney came away unscathed; Perry did not but held up. Huntsman supports the Hoax of Global Warming and Rick Perry didn't respond strongly enough.
The Liberal plans end up being money laundry schemes for Democrats. Rick Perry calls out Social Security and he should be encouraged by our side. Seniors understand better than young punks that spend money they don't have. Grandparents want a future in America for their kids and grandkids. America is at a tipping point and when someone stands up with courage, don't take them out. We expect Democrats to try but not our side.
>>> I guess I am saying, "Suspend 'politics as usual'."
Seg#6: A writer says, "Rick Perry is Rush Limbaugh, with good hair".
(Theme Music) Social Security never was: "You put in 'X' and later you get out what you put in." It has always been somebody else paying you. Sorry if this bursts your bubble. Here's the point: when it started, 140 people paid for one person taking social security benefits. What is it now? Three and getting smaller.
It has to be fixed, clear and simple. Medicare is in worse shape.
I don't know why our conservative blogs don't like Michele Bachmann. She is composed and professional. Did she say something off-base? No. She won the Iowa straw poll and did that relegate her to irrelevant. If Palin gets in, Bachmann will be hurt even more. She is committed to America and deserves respect.
Romney continues to do well in the debate. He is not going to give up explaining RomneyCare. He is a cautious as the front-runner. I am not going to trash any of those on stage last night. I agree with Newt: any of them are better than Obama. Some of them have no chance. [Huntsman in particular]
Byron York never said Rick Perry was wrong, just that he hurt himself. Others write about it ((Reading: Social Security is worse than a voluntary ponzi scheme. Trillions of dollars have gone in and been spent on other programs. The government automatically withholds your money. When a ponzi scheme fails, it collapses; but when social security is about to fail, the government raises your taxes. It can't sustain itself for long.)) Today the social security tax is over 12%.
In 2030, it will drop from three to one to two to one. It's unsustainable, as is Obama. Obamacare is unsustainable.
((Clip-Trumka: Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer and the truth never gets in his way. He is insidiary [sic])) I never heard of the word.
>>> We'll have more sound-bytes and your phone calls.
Segment#7: Is 'insiduary' a new Liberal word?
Caller-TX: I'm 65 and conservative about Social Security.
Democrats have accused Republicans for 50 years, and some believe the charges enough to vote for Democrats. They cannot deny the state of social security, that it is in ruin; it is a cash-cow for other programs. Democrats ruin the system and then set themselves up as great defenders.
Meanwhile, who is destroying [all systems], Obama. Now he is responsible for out-of-control escalation of healthcare costs. Whatever went on in the past pales in comparison to what has been done in the past three years. Establishment Republican are to blame also. But Republicans have not supported Obamacare.
The Ruling Class tell us we can't talk about Social Security because they want to use that money when they get back in power.
>>> >>> >>> It may be 'insiduary' but that is the Truth.
>>> This is another reason for Tea Party of responsible citizens.
Seg#8: Many seniors understand the Truth about social security
We have to borrow $1Trillion from the ChiComs and are now #5 after being #1. For anyone running the question should be, "Social Security is not sustainable, how will you deal with that?" Instead, we get, "Why do you call it a Ponzi Scheme." There was not one question about the Debt, because they protected Obama.
Now we have a moratorium and we cannot produce our own energy. This is in large part because of a hoax. The Green Energy company can't find their gov't money.
Caller-gal: Many of us as seniors understand the Truth about SocSec.
I remember Democrats said Republicans wanted to kick seniors out of their homes, and seniors believed it. If that is all you have, you do not want to roll the dice. I have been tracking it here in Florida and it is not working for Democrats anymore.
Caller: I support Palin but don't want her to get in. Toss Democrats. We send Conservatives to DC but they are getting beat up and need reinforcements. Wake up or we will lose our beautiful country. We have one more chance!
I feel confident about it. 14 months is a long time. At the White House, they know what their internal polling is saying. Obama would lose today.
How about this: Give us all back what we put in. Let us spend it how we want. Call the Social Security Administration and see what they say. They can't. Do you realize it is not there? If I go to the bank or own stock, I can get my money.
They are not separate accounts. Send Obama a demand letter to cut each of us a check. If it isn't a 'ponzi scheme', what is it?
>>> >> > Whatever it is, it isn't working.
Seg#9: What is Obama's excuse?
CNN asks, "Are jobs obsolete?" Douglas Rushkroff. Does that excuse Obama?
Caller-IL: I went to the SocSec office and it was a bunch of young people.
It has become a welfare program for bottom-feeders. Same with state office buildings.
>>> It is far more than senior citizens drawing funds out.
Seg#10: USA is productive enough that we could provide for many.
>>> This is the opinion of CNN D.Rushkroff whom I never heard of.
ED Closing: We leave a little early today — enjoy NFL kickoff .!.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Dump!"
In 1997, after a long search, paramedic Susette Kelo found an affordable cottage with beautiful water views in New London, Connecticut. She spent every spare minute turning the place into her dream house. A year later, a real estate agent offered to purchase the cottage for an unnamed buyer. The agent warned that if Suzette refused to sell, the house would be taken via "eminent domain." Susette said no.
Thanksgiving Eve, 2000, a New London sheriff taped a note to her door: the city had condemned the property. It was seizing Susette Kelo's cottage to make way for a luxury hotel and condos that would bring in big tax revenue, along with thousands of new jobs. That's what the developer promised. Meanwhile, the city of New London was awarded $2 million in federal funds for the project.
Five years later in one of the most infamous rulings in recent memory the Supreme Court sided with New London. The Court told Susette Kelo that her American dream didn't matter. The city could evict her, so her property could be handed over to a more powerful private party.
Last weekend, Big Government.com posted an update. Susette's cottage was demolished years ago. But the developer's plans went bust. No tax revenue, no thousands of jobs. Today, the land is a city dump.
We've got another big "developer" promising thousands of jobs while confiscating assets from the Little Guy. He's in the White House. His program is a bust, too. And he's turning the entire country into a dump!

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"If this is not what the Regime intended, then why do they keep doing it?"
"We need less regulation, less taxation. We need the government to just get out of the way. Everybody on the right has a good jobs plan."
"All of this is so unnecessary, all of this wreckage on purpose by a rank amateur, whose biggest supporters are running around saying they don't know who he is. I've known all along who he is. And that's why I wanted him to fail, and he hasn't failed. He succeeded profoundly."
"When you start talking about 'compromise,' everybody knows what that means. That means move left."
"Why does America need to be rebuilt? America didn't need to be rebuilt two and a half years ago!"
"Isn't the purpose of this debate tonight for one of these people to stand head and shoulders above everybody else in demonstrating he or she is the one who can beat Obama? Not compromise with Obama, or not moderate in such a way as to get along with Obama! Moderating is caving, as far as I'm concerned."
"What is the point of a tactic if there's no purpose to it? I'm not a conservative because I embrace 'tactics.' I'm a conservative because I believe and embrace certain broad yet fundamental principles."
"There hasn't been any Republican obstructionism! The Republicans, for two and a half years, didn't have the numbers to obstruct anything."
"Wherever you go in this country in the private sector, if you're gonna find problems you're gonna find either a Democrat president or a union somewhere involved in the mix that's making the situation worse."
"We will find out what it is that the little man-child is thinking a little over 24 hours. I expect MSNBC to start the stupid countdown any minute."
"Ford just announced that they're building a billion-dollar plant in India. Can you blame them? If they wanted to build a plant in South Carolina, the Obama regime would sue 'em cause it is a nonunion state!"
"The world does not revolve around Washington. This country does not revolve around Washington. Washington is nothing but a gigantic boulder in our highway to progress."
"All government can do is destroy or redistribute wealth. It happen it cannot, by definition, create it."
"There's no private sector growth -- and when government growth accounts for economic growth, there is no growth that benefits people in the private sector, pure and simple."
"The Democrats are talking about racism and hostage takers and sons-of-bitches and telling us to go to hell and so forth, that's who the independents are gonna go to?"
"We face an existential threat to our way of life! That is what is represented by today's Democrat Party and its leader, Barack Obama."
"Tactics and moderation without principle in the face of a destructive opponent are pointless. They're useless. They might make you, the moderate, feel better at the end of the day, but that's...worth...nothing."
"We're three years in and we're getting 'Who is Obama?' stories from the New York Times! These are the guys that led the pack on creating the image of The Messiah during the 2008 campaign and all of that."
"Republican moderates are guaranteed losers in eight out of ten elections you're gonna have."
"The way I look at it, I already compromise far more than anybody else I know. I tie half my brain behind my back every day just to make it fair. Nobody engages in any greater compromise than I do, and why should we believe that Democrats want to compromise with us 'sons-of-bitches' anyway?"
"It's shocking the damage that's been done to this country in three years."
"We live in a society now where the federal government is involved in everything.
Our Treasury is broke. Entitlements are breaking us. An inexperienced man-child president is destroying us. Business is under attack. Freedom and liberty are under attack, right in front of our eyes."
"Not only has Obama taken jobs away, he has made sure that fewer people have health insurance."
"We have a guy who's happily presiding over decline! There is nothing motivational or inspirational at all about this guy. There never has been."
"This show never really ends. It's a continuum, just have a 21-hour break here, and we'll be back, same time, same place tomorrow, and revved and ready."
